Sheehan grieving

UPDATE: For contrast, read Newsweek's recent item on President Bush meeting bereaved families (thx Tincanman).

UPDATE2: Christopher Hitchens comments:
Suppose I had lost a child in this war. Would any of my critics say that this gave me any extra authority? I certainly would not ask or expect them to do so. Why, then, should anyone grant them such a privilege?
Exactly right.

UPDATE3: Sheehan's husband files for a divorce.

And here we can read about President Bush grieving. It creates a completely different image, doesn't it?

I don't think I'd be able to talk with so many bereaved families without cracking. Either cracking or becoming completely cold.

Nor could I. But good on him for doing that.

What a fricking circus. If it was on SNL I'm sure they'd have OJ parading in front of the cameras looking for the real killers as well. The mind boggles about how messed up it all is... the guy was a volunteer, he accepted the risks, does anyone think this crap is helping the poor woman???

You know it's getting really eff-ed up when...

Why Cindy Sheehan is Right! by David Duke.

Good God that man is evil. Joos! Joos all around!!

David Duke is a despicable anti-semetic and a racist to boot. I try not to use those terms loosely as they get bandied around a lot. But in this case it feels appropriate.

I wonder what the Peacenik-Lefties make of having the likes of white supremist David Duke batting for Cindy Sheehan and all the time they are also feeding her the lines about the apparent evilness of Israel. It scares me shitless when both the Far Left and the Far Right use Jews as their scapegoat and that if Jews/Israel disappeared the world would be a beautiful, peaceful place. What a load of shite!

The "far left and far right" have always used Jews as scapegoats, because they are pretty much one and the same thing, one is more international than the other. Either way, if you're a Jew neither is your friend.

Ugh, I just read the David Duke thing. Ugh. I need a cup of tea.

Sally, he's just a lunatic. He sounds almost hysterical. I don't blame you for being freaked out.

Lucyna - yes, a restorative cup of tea sounds the business!

If my memory serves me correctly I think David Duke may have run for Congress sometime during the Clinton years. He is well-known in America for his hostile anti-semitism, racist rants against Blacks and I think Catholics also get a taste of his displeasure from reading his vile hatred over the years.

As I hadn't heard or read anything connected to him for some years , I hoped he had disappeared. It's terrible seeing him coming to prominence again on the backs of the Anti-Iraq war movement.
I bet those Peaceniks will turn a moral blind eye to his anti-semitic hatered and use his overall stance to support their cause.

The Dems have that old coot Byrd still in the senate, can't see how they'd object to another clansman joining him. After all, the old bloke is nearly ready to retire someone needs to take over.

In a bizarre aside, apparently her husband has now filed for divorce.
